The Zombie Comic

The Zombie Comic

The Zombie Comic is a web comic by Matt Lee, started back in April and infrequently updated since. Of course that can be forgiven when you’re a student that also works.

Recently though Matt has been dedicating more time to the site and producing work like the image above.

If you’d like to support him you can also make a donation and in return you’ll get anything from a signed print to a zombified picture of yourself.

You can see examples of the zombification process on the blog or check out the picture of ZC Barry posted yesterday. You can also follow him on Twitter.

Division 9 – Scrapped Zombie Shooter From Irrational Games

14 Jan

On Tuesday we Tweeted about a cancelled zombie game from newly revitalised Irrational Games. Well now Game Informer have a scoop on exactly what it was we missed out on, years before Left 4 Dead gave us a zombie shooter we could all play.

Unlike Valve’s seminal shooter though (that isn’t as dirty as it sounds and if you laughed at that you’ll probably find this funny) survivors were tasked with setting up a base, gathering resources and restoring a semi-normal life.

Sample missions would see players able to rescue a doctor from across town, restore the power grid to the city or simply raid the surrounding area to gather supplies.

Basically, this game still sounds awesome and Irrational should be making it immediately! Click on the source link below to read the full article.

California’s Berkeley To Run Zombie University Course

California’s Berkeley To Run Zombie University Course

Finally, a course that’s actually worth studying! The University of California’s Berkeley have a zombie class beginning on the 27th of this month for students to enrol in. Competition is fierce with over 100 applicants to fill just 25 spaces.

The program is run by DeCal –

a student-run democratic education program at the UC Berkeley – here, students create and facilitate their own classes on a variety of (often unorthodox) subjects.

Required reading for the course is The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks (of course) and they’ll be watching numerous zombie films throughout the course before discussing the themes such as ‘class warfare’ in Land of the Dead, ‘media’ in Diary of the Dead and more important topics like ‘zombie or not zombie’ in 28 Days Later.

The most interesting part though is the practical

Final Examination – You will be responsible for a practical final exam on the last day of instruction, the format of which will be determined by the facilitators. It will draw on your cumulative knowledge of the materials covered over the course of the semester.

Does this mean that UC Berkeley will be letting zombies loose on campus for the students to deal with? If so, I hope they’ve studied!

Full details and syllabus can be downloaded from the site and if you fancy enrolling you better be the biggest zombie enthusiast on the planet to still stand a chance of getting in.

Now… where’s our application form.
